BigJiantRobut said:My game is running better (well, smoother) with 2x Deferred and Medium Post AA than it was with no Deferred and High Post AA. I'm getting a pretty consistent 30fps/40fps depending on the map rather than the fluctuating 30-60fps I was getting all over the place.
This is with the signed 11.10 AMD drivers, btw.
Jtrizzy said:Anything on the jerky mouse movement? I'm back to using the 360 controller in the campaign. Actually at this point I have G13-KB-M and controller in use all at once. What a clusterfuck.
Game is running fine (580 and firstname.lastname@example.org) with the exception of a few crashes, but moving with the mouse is so janky that it's hard to enjoy the amazing graphics. Glad I have a controller for the campaign, even though it has shitty support too. MP I will be using the G13.

Manager said:Maybe it's the harddrive? Tried defrag? A lot of information being saved. Otherwise you could just try, to test, 720p and record at lower res and see if it fix it.
Thanks mate.BoobPhysics101 said:I can give you some quick tips:
Set Ambient Occlusion to SSAO instead of HBAO. Looks about the same but gives a nice performance boost. Turn off deferred antialiasing, it'll kill your FPS especially on AMD hardware. Turn shadows to medium or high for a decent boost with little image quality loss.
We have made some fixes and because sharing is caring, we would like to share these changes we are deploying with you.
This is a server patch which means that you don´t have to update anything on your client.
These are the fixes
- Fix for rubber banding
- TDM/SQDM spawn point fix
- crash fixes in end of round
- Fix for connection problem when joining password protected servers
We will deploy these fixes at 09:00 CET which is 8:00 GMT and midnight pacific time on the 3rd of November.
These changes have already made their way to the PC so this time it´s going out for Xbox 360 and PS3.
Mr_eX said:Is this glitch I had yesterday a VRAM thing?
I've been playing it every day since launch and that was the first and only time it has happened. If it continues I will definitely try that.Black_Stride said:Try reducing the overclock on your graphics card.
Running out of Vram will cause a brief stutter, not artifacts.
Check temps of your graphics card as well.....either way i think slowing the card down will help.
Hitting the 60 fps mark for $700 will be tough. I'm happy with the performance on my rig, it never dips below 30 and mostly stays at 40-50 frames at high settings with hbao and ultra textures. Here is a link to my build, Second post down. I spent $723 after MIR.JJBro One said:Im building a pc right now for my little brother to play battlefield 3 on high settings at 60 fps. I'm trying to spend around $700 and under. Any suggestions?
Thanks. According to toms hardware the 6950 gets around 60 fps on high settings at 1920X1080. Are you getting that? http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063-8.htmlACE 1991 said:
That's single player, which is FAR less taxing on hardware than multiplayer. I was referring to the latter in my performance results.JJBro One said:Thanks.

I only recently got into PC gaming, so I think I'll let someone else more knowledgeable than myself answer that one. You're definitely better off getting an nvidia card though.JJBro One said:Ya bf3 is my main concern. What would you suggest?

Manager said:It seems widespread on both PC and consoles. I haven't found a common factor in this thread on PC. Seems pretty random. I guess it's worth to try the common fixes: upgrade drivers and not overclock your GPU (underclock if it's factory OC'd).
BoobPhysics101 said:2500k or Phenom x4 (2500k if you have a Microcenter near you) + decent mobo = 200-250
Radeon 6950 or 560 Ti = $200
PSU = $50+
HDD = $50+
Just to give you an idea.
1920 x 1200 and I get between 35-60. It's usually in the 40s or 50s.JJBro One said:How many frames are u getting and at what resolution?
WarMacheen said:Microcenter 2500k is $180
What MB are you looking at, that is decent for $20-$70
or am I reading that wrong.
Also OS, Memory

Corky said:So I'm out of options if feels.
I'm getting two types of crashes
Crash type 1 ) Crash to desktop, bf3.exe has stopped working, this happens pretty much every single time I start the first "round of the day" so to speak. It's like it has to happen. This one I don't give a shit about since it only happens once a day tops and is non-intrusive.
Crash type 2 ) Game freezes after 30 min into the game, temps are ok, no bsod message no nothing. 50% chance if CTRL-ALT-DEL works ( when it does I can go back to desktop to see the bloody "bf3.exe has stopped working" message ), 50% chance it doesn't and I have to manually reboot. I need to fix this because I won't be able to play like this.
To add to these fixes;TheNamelessOne said:For the first one I heard it helps running both origin.exe and bf3.exe as administrator - I have yet to try it out tho.
As for the second - what GPU do you have? I have a 560Ti that I have to lower the clock to 850 mhz from 900 mhz to get rid of that crash.
It's a 4830 - of course it's gonna run and look bad.Erasus said:Performance is horrible on some maps with a 4830 512MB (its the minimum)
Getting dips into 20-25....
I can run BC2 on high/medium at 1080p and get 40fps
BF3 looks way worse than BC2 on low and runs way worse.
What the fuck DICE?
